Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge sales are starting to nosedive

1 min read

Despite record-breaking sales at launch, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are starting to lose some serious steam. In the four months since Samsung first released the premium smartphones, both of them have experienced initially excellent sales followed by a massive decline. Although the company is still the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, other companies, most notably Apple, have been closing the gap over the past few years. While it was hoped that the Galaxy S6 would help get Samsung out of the rut that it’s in, that doesn’t seem likely anymore. 

Samsung released two the highest anticipated devices in the company’s history this year, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Both smartphones hit the stores a little over 4 months ago, and at first appeared to be selling just fine. Unfortunately for Samsung, the overall sales of its flagship devices have greatly declined in those four short months. According to a new report by Argus Insights, Samsung might have already reached the peak for Galaxy S6 sales and have started to decline and has also fallen short of its main competitor’s overall sales, as Apple is miles ahead with the iPhone 6 when it comes to public demand in the United States. Samsung and Apple have been the most popular smartphone manufacturers for several years now, and this has remained quite the same during the second quarter of 2015, which finalized on June 30. When Samsung introduced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge back in April, most reports predicted a major spike in Samsung sales, as both devices sparked quite a lot of interest from the media and numerous tech enthusiasts rushed to buy one of the two flagship devices as soon as they were available. But, something that wasn’t predicted is that those sales wouldn’t be preserved and rapidly decrease after the first weeks of being on the market. The reason behind why it wasn’t predicted how the public lost interest in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is based on how their predecessors, the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 had a rather persistent overall demand.
